Bill Diehl Passes Away at Age 78
James, McElroy & Diehl mourns the loss of one of the firm’s founders, Bill Diehl. For those not fortunate enough to have known him, Bill was the larger-than-life leader of the firm throughout most of its history. He was a legal legend, scholar of the law, and zealous advocate for each and every one of his clients. He set the bar for litigation excellence throughout North Carolina. His life’s work created a law firm that continues on in his absence, but always in his spirit. Outside the courtroom, he was a generous law partner, mentor, and friend with a charismatic personality and brilliant sense of humor. Bill was a force of nature and his loss will be deeply felt at the firm, and by all who knew and loved him.
